Description

What is the aim of this course?

One of the projects you will participate during your work in management consulting is the Due Diligence Project. They usually are part either of Merger and Acquisition (M&A) attempts of big firms or are generated by Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) funds that are looking for opportunities to invest in new businesses. Those projects are very intensive, short and will enable you to learn in-depth the industries and companies you will be analyzing. There are also very difficult as you have to understand very fast the challenges in a specific industry, the competitive landscape and to evaluate how much is the target business worth. Management Consultants and Business Analysts are usually responsible only for a part of the Due Diligence called the Commercial Due Diligence. In this course I will show you how to deliver such projects fast and efficiently. In the course you will learn the following things:

How to prepare for the project to make your customer and your team happy as well to finish the project much earlier than your competitors

How to create value for your customer (Private Equity, Strategic Investors, VC, etc.)

Which research methods to use

How to structure and create a presentation summarizing Commercial Due Diligence

How to talk with the potential investors

The course is based on my 14 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B and services sector that I worked for. I have carried over 40 different Commercial Due Diligence for PE, VC, strategic investors and have participated in supervision of acquired companies. On the basis of what you will find in this course I have trained over 100 consultants, business analysts and managers who now are Partners in PE and VC funds, Investment Directors and Business Analysts in PE and VC, Operational Directors, COO, CRO, CEO, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members etc.

Why I decided to create this course?

To sum it up, the course will help you become an expert in Commercial Due Diligence Projects. That is why, I highly recommend this course not only to Consultants or Business Analysts that have to advice their customer but also to Investment Directors working for PE, VS as well as owners, founders of businesses that consider selling their business at some stage.

In what way will you benefit from this course?

The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed with which you understand, analyze the business considered for acquisition. There is little theory mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will learn:

How to prepare for the project to make your customer and your team happy as well to finish the project much earlier than your competitors

How to create value for your customer

Which research methods to use

How a presentation summarizing Commercial Due Diligence should look like
